The boundary between Niger and Nigeria was originally established by French and British colonial powers. It runs for 1,633 km in a generally east-to-west direction, mostly following straight lines between boundary markers. It was vaguely delimited in 1898 and received many adjustments in the early 20th century. It has not changed since its final determination and demarcation by France and the United Kingdom in 1910.
